Expert Reviews


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 94-95 pts - The 2002 Shiraz Reiver is aged in 100% French oak, of which 70% is new. Sweet floral, black, and blue fruit aromas soar from the glass of this black/purple-colored 2002. Extremely full-bodied, deep, and chewy, with tremendous purity as well as texture, it is a remarkably well-balanced behemoth from South Australia that should age effortlessly for 15+ years. Barrel samples of three 2002s revealed tremendous potential in what appears to be the finest efforts Mitolo has yet produced. There are 300-400 cases of each, and all three are scheduled to be bottled in October. Kudos to young importer (31 years old!) Ben Hammerschlag for unearthing these potential superstars. - Aug 2003

James Halliday's Wine Companion - 95 pts - A focused, supple and smooth array of black and red fruits; ripe tannins; great balance and length; quality oak, beautifully made Date tasted 11 Mar 2004. Drink by 2022
